Paramedics On Board

Hiking is a high-risk activity like most other sports. All our excursions have at least one skilled paramedic on board to take care of you in case of injury.

Getting lost is not funny; therefore, we do not negotiate on your safety on the trails. We engage sufficient local guides and support staff to ensure a 10:1 participant to guide ratio.

Skilled Team

Team Outdoorer boasts thousands of hours spent in the great outdoors learning, practicing, and iterating the best formulas for safety and growth. Hiking is our business and we mean business.

OUTDOORER COMMUNITY

We have something going on every Saturday. Our events bring together people from different walks of life, uniting them under one common need: to connect with self, others, and nature.

My only resolution for the year 2021 was: do hard things!

I came across the #beginnertomtkenya program in December 2020, at a time when the pandemic had brought my business to its knees. I badly wanted to sign up for the program amidst these mixed emotions. I decided to not wait for things to get better, so I went ahead. My family and friends expressed concerns about how… Read more “My only resolution for the year 2021 was: do hard things!”

I don’t think I have had as many conversations with God as I did while on this trek

Climbing Mt. Kenya in 2021 was nowhere in my plans for 2021. In fact, I remember on my birthday in January, a friend suggested to a few of us that we climb Mt. Longonot and I thought that was so funny! This must have, however, stuck in my mind, as towards the end of January,… Read more “I don’t think I have had as many conversations with God as I did while on this trek”

Mine was a journey of kindness to self

When I set out to scale Lenana Peak, nobody believed I could make it

I have always wanted to push myself beyond my physique. When I set out to scale Lenana Peak, nobody believed I could make it — myself included; but what is ambition if it doesn’t scare you? I have been pushed out of my comfort zone and set out a clear plan for fitness, and had… Read more “When I set out to scale Lenana Peak, nobody believed I could make it”

THE OUTDOORER CREED

I am a hiker, not a marathoner.
The mountain is not going anywhere, I am.
I will keep a moderate pace to save my life and health today.
So, if I don't summit today I can do it all over again next time.
I will never conquer the mountain but I can conquer myself.
I will unlock my mountain.

no matter your fitness level, we're here to help you get up and out

Hiking is a great way to be outdoors, stay active, relieve stress, enjoy nature, bond with your family and friends, or just have some fun.
